On the same trip was a game with Ya- kim, which was second only to Selah in the Yakima Valley junior legmn conference and split six games with Selah during the sea- son. SHELTON ALSO defeated two district champions during the sea- son -- splitting two games with West Seattle. the Seattle titlist, and dividing a pair with Aberdeen, 10th District champion. The vic- tory over Aberdeen was the first loss up to that point for the Har- bor club. Another split was with Morton. which placed second to Aberdeen in the regular 10th dis- trict schedule, and still another was with Rainier Beach, third place finisher in the Seattle league. Shelton lost doubleheaders to Burien's Connie Mack team. sec- ond in the King County Connie Mack league, and two Burien's junior legion team, second to Kent in the King County district. SHELTON PLAYED 18 differ- ent 'teams during the schedule, in- cluding two adult clubs, splitting 2 decisions with McCleary's town team and twice beating the Sko- komish Indians. Others not alraady mentioned included Hoquiam, E1- ma, Raymond, Longview, and Olympia beating Elma and Long'- view in single games, losing once to Hoquiam and three times to Olympia. Leaky infield defenses proved Shelton's Achilles heel. Of 181 opponent runs, only 109 were ear- ned during the 31 games, or 60 percent. On the contrary, of Shel- ton's 110 runs 74 zns were earn- ed, or just short of 70 percent. Prospects for 1964 are bright. Sloan's loss will be the hardest to replace with his key role in the pitching and batting ranks.

Catcher Jim Richards and in- fielders Denny Bailey and Larry Powell showed promming potential in their first flings with the junior legion this year. 1964 could be a big year for Shelton's team.
